11.26.20 Thanksgiving around the Father’s Table

Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the lamb! Revelation 19:9

For years our family has celebrated Thanksgiving at my father’s house. The meal was always abundant and delicious turkey with dressing and gravy, ham, green beans… my mouth waters just thinking about it!

But the highlight of Thanksgiving was not the food, or the televised football games, or the food.

The highlight was always the fellowship around the dining room table. As we sipped our coffee and gorged on one last piece of pie, my father presided at the head of the table as each person shared what he or she was most thankful for… We celebrate this way today, although our family circle is so large we have our dinner at a conference center. But the highlight is still the story of thanks.

One day, in My Father’s House, the table will be set and supper will be ready. One day you and I and all of the Father’s children will be seated around that table. One day our Father will preside as He gathers us to Himself, listening intently and loving as we share our love for each other and our love for Him. One day My Father’s House will be filled with His family, and it won’t get any better than that.
